A splendid session with 27 strong, strapping soldiers. We had a great mix of kills, death, success, failure and a dash of hiding behind rocks. Tonights missions were:
- Guns of Nagarone
- Rural Ural
Guns of Nagarone is one of Bodges new missions with multiple objectives. Charlie with engineers took care of the generators to the northwest while the rest of the troops piled up into the Humvees. This main force waited a while behind rocks, waiting for the armored caravan to start rolling when Charlie finished their objective. Our heroes decimated the vehicles when they did go past and rejoined with Charlie for the attack on Nagara. With some creative use of rocket launchers and satchels both the cannons and ammo boxes were destroyed. Success!
Next in the mission list was the adversarial mission Cordonbleufor were blufor were to escape the cordon the opfor troops already had set up. And boy did they have a challenge. Player opfor troops pushed in through the north while blufor were holding out in the north west part of the cordon. But in the end they could not hold out against the combined efforts of the AI and player opfors so they take this win for the takistani people.
In Payback opfor troops were tasked with intercepting a transport, stealing the weapons and then attacking the airfield with their newly acquired weapons. Sadly the transport detected our troops before reaching the appointed ambush point but things turned out well anyway with minimal losses even when hostiles from the airport arrived. With the new weapons everybody started moving west but within short time MI-8 helicopters started appearing overhead, sending all players into a mad dash towards the airfield. Things where going very well until we all got to the outer wall of the airport. Reports of a ZU were spreading while most players died behind the hangars. Ebass did an epic last stand but alas could not hold out.
Last out was the Chernarous based Rural Ural, the mission where opfor troops spawned in the north of Orlovets and had to take out two ZU's to the southwest and southeast (at Solnichniy). Using automotive transports (ones with wheels and not tracks sadly) all troops were transported to the eastern ZU and set up to attack en masse from the west. Turns out hunters are pretty tough, taking with them multiple casualties. But in the end, TacTues players were able to secure the area and even steal the ZU. With the ZU setting up south of the next target the rest of the infantry moved on foot due west towards the same target.
Attacking from two directions things turned to deadly. On both sides. It was close, with less players alive than you can count on one hand, but victory was achieved.
Thanks for tonight everybody for a great session. I bet you also got some interesting stories to tell, please do below!
